Shadow Shot Sunday


Thank you again to Tracy for hosting Shadow Shot Sunday for us.

As I was about to turn a corner in Cape May City, I had to wait for a couple of horses and buggies. They are a popular mode of transportation for tourists in the town when they want lots of time to snap pictures of the Victorian architecture and other sights. So I snapped a couple of shadow shots as I followed behind them.




When we reached a stop light, they pulled over to the curb, and I pulled up beside them to wait for the green. It gave the lead horse a chance to take a look at me.

I love that there are no cars on the street. It really makes it feel like a different era. Love the shot of the horse checking you out. :)

At his time of year your photos of a horse hitched to a conveyance brings back memories of my earlier years when my grandfather used to hitch a horse up to a sleigh and take me for s drive on the snow packed roads. I remember he also kept an old bearskin in the sleigh to cover with for it was often fiercely cold traveling in that fashion. Best of my memories was the carriage house. A barn like building that housed many fascinating things like wagons, sleighs , the hay rick and all sorts of harness apparatus. Thanks for the memories... It is snowing today, but I agree with you, no more posting of snow pictures, Spring can't come soon enough! Have a great day and keep warm.

I like the look on the horse's face. I recently photographed a horse and a pony frolicking in a field. In some of them, they're showing their teeth. They look comical that way.

Have a good week, Bobbie!

These are great Bobbie! Funny coincidence, I visited with horses myself this weekend too.
